Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion also known as microderm is a term for the application of tiny rough grains to buff away the surface layer of skin. It is usually done to various parts including arms, neck, face, chest or hands. It is one of the easiest and most effective anti-aging treatments. It usually softens fine lines and wrinkles, help to smooth coarsely textured skin, decrease the appearance of scarring, decreases pore size and reduces superficial hyper-pigmentation or age spots.

There are usually two procedures that may be used in microdermabrasion, either the original crystal microdermabrasion technology or the newer diamond tip microdermabrasion. Microdermabrasion is a light cosmetic procedure that uses a mechanical medium for exfoliation to gently remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells from the epidermis. It mainly uses two parts: an exfoliating material like crystals or diamond flakes and a machine based suction to gently lift up skin during exfoliation.

It’s a surgical procedure typically performed in professional medical setting by a dermatologist specifically in this massive procedure. It is fairly simple, easy, painless, non-invasive, skin rejuvenation procedure which is used in combination of a fine abrasive tip or crystal and vacuum sunction applied to skin. There are usually no needles or anesthetics required for this procedure. The vacuum pressure and speed are adjusted depending on the sensitivity and tolerance of the skin.

It’s a very effective way of skin rejuvenation since most people immediately return to daily activity after a session and normal makeup and non-irritating creams can be applied after the procedure. Microdermabrasion is one of the most recent skin care techniques. It’s a more effective alternative, less costly and more invasive. More people are recently try it as opposed to cosmetic surgery.

Unlike the ancient crystal microdermabrasion system which contained a pump, a connecting tube, a hand piece and a vacuum source, the diamond microdermabrasion does not produce particles from crystals that may be inhaled into patients’ nose or blown into the eyes. Thus diamond microdermabrasion has a higher safety for use and more effective for treatment.

Microdermabrasion helps to gently remove skin plaque and skin debris since it temporarily removes a few of the top layers of the skin called stratum corneum. The procedure needs to be repeated at average intervals for continued improvement. Multiple treatments combined with microdermabrasion like sunscreen, sun avoidance, and other skin care creams yield multiple results.

Microdermabrasion procedure works on all skin types and helps to reduce the appearance of superficial hyper pigment and photo damage, as well as diminish fine lines, wrinkles, acne and shallow acne scars. It also leads to enhanced skin penetration by other skin creams and serums since the dead skin which is removes will aid it the penetration of skin care products and medications.

Microdermabrasion treatment has fewer side effects or complications. Some patients may however experience temporary mild dryness, sun sensitivity and temporary bruising in the area of skin treated.
